AMD Aims to Offer Alternative to Vanderpool, Silvervale

Posted on Sunday, September 12 2004 @ 23:31:27 CEST by


Advanced Micro Devices, the world’s No.2 maker of microprocessors, is planning to present its own technology similar to Intel’s Vanderpool and Silvervale that can emulate numerous independent execution machines on a single personal computer in future. The move is likely to ensure AMD-based PCs are able to offer the same functionality as “Intel Inside” computers.

“Pacifica is an AMD program focused on enhancing virtualization technology,” said Phil Hughes, an AMD spokesman.

For more than a year now Santa Clara, California-based Intel has been planning to enable advanced parallelism for personal computers in order to increase reliability and add new usage models for end-users. Vanderpool is a hardware tech that splits system into several virtual parts that work independently and use the same resources of the PC. Servers’ central processing units are also likely to get a virtualization tech: Intel calls it Silvervale, but does not reveal any differences compared to Vanderpool.
